My favorite recipes are usually the ones where I say "this can hardly be called a recipe." They are the recipes that I usually describe as quick, easy, healthy and festive. To me, all food should have those elements. Why make things difficult? More importantly, why not have a little fun?
And yes, to me, a pile of grilled, delicious shrimp is fun!
Heres what you'll need:
- 2 lbs large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tail-on
- 2 lemons, 1 for juice and zest, 1 for garnish.
- parsley, bunch, chopped for garnish
- garlic, 1-2 cloves, minced or grated
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 splash Worcestershire sauce
- salt & pepper
- olive oil, about 2 tbsp
For the marinade: Whisk the juice and zest of 1 lemon, garlic, mustard, Worcestershire, olive oil, salt & pepper in a bowl. Taste for proper seasoning.
Pour over shrimp and toss, coating all. Place in a large food storage bag and let marinate in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
For the grill: Using a slotted spoon, transfer marinated shrimp onto a grill pan (a pan with holes). On high heat, cook shrimp for 8-10 minutes, turning as needed to avoid over browning. Grill until shrimp are curled and opaque.
Garnish with squeeze of lemon, lemon wedges and chopped parsley.
